“The House On Melody Street” interactive eBook tells the heart-warming story of the instruments of the orchestra learning to live in harmony.
The storyline, written in rhymes and set to a symphonic score, includes lessons about friendship, tolerance, and mutual understanding. The musical score represents different dialogues between the various characters, portraying each one with its own unique sound. Children are introduced to the musical families of the orchestra- Strings, Woodwinds, Percussion, Brass and Pluck, and learn to recognize them by look, sound, character and family orientation.
The first chapter introduces the five story house in which the musical instrument families live. Children get to interact and form personal relationships with each of the lovable characters through fun and imagination filled touch-screen activities. As the story unfolds in the following chapters, we discover that living together is no easy task, when one isn’t willing to accept the other's uniqueness. Timpani Tim is too loud, Old Lady Harp's cat goes through the trash, Sammy Snare is rowdy and Terry Trombone's cooking smells. But on one sunny morning, a new neighbor arrives and comes up with a plan to help them live in harmony.
Listen to the sound of each instrument and follow along with the story... you will discover a new surprising interactive feature with every read! This app is wonderful for children and their development through fun activities and entertaining musical education.
"All who read and listen will enjoy this adventure into the music world, while learning some life long values". - Donna Rolfe, The Dove Foundation.
